Gold color. Floral, exotic aromas of honeysuckle, nectarine, ripe melon, and vanilla taffy with a round, vibrant, very sweet medium-full body and a peppery, appealing, medium-length ginger and asian pear, white pepper, caramelized pears, and passion fruit finish with medium, fruit tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A tropical white port for cocktails, desserts, and casual sipping.

Domestic Port-Style Wine

Serve in a Port Wine Glass
Domestic Port-Style Wines are those made in the style of Portuguese Ports wines but grown and vinified in the United States. Wines made in this style are typically fortified with brandy or distilled grape spirits which causes fermentation to stop and also increases alcohol. Flavors are typically sweetfruity, nutty, and have a stronger alcohol presence than standard table wines. The best examples are highly comparable to true Ports.
